Slapdash Saturdays

Just popping on for a few to share a few links I found since the last share. Enjoy!

  • [Say] No to Chicken Rental

    Chicken keeping isn’t as easy as so many of its proponents would like you to believe. No animal is easy – if it is, you’re likely doing something wrong. For example, a rabbit in a wire hutch in the backyard is no trouble to take care of – simply give it food and water daily – but you’re not providing what the rabbit needs to live a decent life. Same thing with chickens. Can you keep two in a small coop for a few months? Yes. Is it what those chickens need to thrive? No. Is it being a responsible animal steward? Definitely not.
  • DIY Purse Organizer From a Hot Pad
    You only need a few things for this project:
  • a hot pad (with the loop in the middle of a side, not at a corner)
  • 6 Ziploc sandwich bags (about 6″ x 6″)
  • a button
  • fabric and ribbon (optional, for decorating the outside)
  • I am thinking you can use a hotpad without a loop and add your own loop.

  • Non-Slip Sewing Machine Foot Pedal Pad
